BCS meetings agenda, topics, talking points this week
Commissioners have to get further down the line with playoff season 16 months away.
PASADENA, Calif. -- We have agenda items for this week's BCS meetings.
(Disclaimer: Commissioners can change their minds at any minute, so take these as a guide, not a textbook.)
Tuesday: We should get the name of the new playoff system. It won't be sexy. In fact, it might be kind of mundane. But it won't be "BCS" and that's a good thing.
National Championship Series.
Melissa McCarthy presents My Big Fat College Football Playoff.
Wednesday: We should get the announcement for the three "host" bowls to go along with the Orange, Rose and Sugar. The overwhelming favorites are the Fiesta, Cotton and Chick-fil-A.
We might also get the site of the first championship game on Jan. 12, 2015. Everyone expects Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Everyone except, perhaps, Tampa.
Thursday: Meetings wrap up. It would be nice to get some information on the selection committee but, for now, the commissioners have a lot of work to do. We're told the committee will be something like 15-20 folks. No matter what, their lives will be changed forever because of the scrutiny.
